    Default A research about "why Hebrews killed all peoples in the cities during conquered?"

    In Bible Moses and Joshua killed all peoples in the cities during conquering. It is not wrong . Because


    Main reasons ::
    1) They are killed because the are sinners
    2) They are killed inorder to prevent future invasions and rebels from them
    3) Killing civilians in war is acceptable and legal in ancient world.


    Extra reasons:


    (1) In olden days , killing inhabitants after capturing their city is a part of war that practices by all race. Killing inhabitants in acceptable and legal .


    (2) According to monarchy , if a king captures a city /country he have right on their land they conquered . So he can do any thing to the people he own. That is , they can kill the people or drove them away etc.


    (3) Since the promised land is occupied by other peoples , mosses and josua cleared them for Hebrew settlement.


    (4) Since the people worshipped other gods , Mosses killed them to save future from idoltery and praying to non -existing gods.


    (5) If he leave the peoples alive , in future they will war against them. So in order to save future war Joshua killed them.


    (6) Since the natural resources are difficult to get and store on that days, Moses and Joshua killed them to prevent famine and drought. If we distribute it with other race people , then it become insufficient for Hebrews .


    (7) in some cities virgins live sinless. So he don't kill them.They taken as slaves. This shows his merciful mind.


    (8) You will say , why they preached about god .. They can't because it is difficult to make barbarians understand. So killing is the only way.


    (9) In olden days , all males must participate in war , if required . So Hebrew soldiers killed all people to stop them from participating in war .


    (10) In olden days , there is no concept called genocide.. Killing civilians is a part of war. No one separated it from war.


    The main aspect is to stop contaminating a race by the dirts from other race.


    Notable points in genocide :


    1) mosses and Joshua don't shows any partiality during genocide . They killed rich , poor , studied ,unstudied persons.. No one spared.


    2) Moses and Joshua don't tortured any one , don't raped girls since it against human rights


    3) All soldiers of Joshua involved in killing and they happy about killing useless people.


    4) solderers went house by house , searched the house thoroughly and killed all humans in the house .


    Some questions and answers:


    1) Are they eligible to be killed ?
    Yes. Since they sinned against god and worshiped other false gods.


    2) Do Hebrews get benefits by killing them ?
    Yes. They eliminated the people those are ever long threat to them.


    3) Is killing is not cruel ?
    The wages of sin is death.. So killing sinned people not cruel .


    4) Why infants and children killed ?
    Because they also inherits their parents sin. But since they are childrens , after death they can directly go to heaven. So no loss for them.


    5) Why pregnant girls also killed ?
    The girls are also sinned. The fetus inside them also inherits sin. Like said in (4) above , after death fetus can directly go to heaven. So no loss for fetus.

    Only one problem.......... We live under a different covenant today. Today, Jesus' teachings are our guide.

    God judged those people for the evil practices they did like child sacrifices, cannabalism, demonic rape and possession, temple prositutes, etc.

    They were told to kill all those people and destroy items of magic and idolary so they would not be tempted to copy their practices.

    However they rebelled and some even sacrificed their own children to the fire.

    I think the spirit of the word is what benefits us and I think the spirit of the word is like...the enemies that we must conquer in ourselves with the Spirits' help. The smallest concession, the smallest one that is allowed to continue living will rise up at some point to harass us. A mans enemies are in his own house. They are pride, arrogance, self will, selfish ambition, self love, etc.

    We need to keep in mind that after the flood, God gave the command not to kill another human being. I think what we had there was war between God and Satan over control of the earth, and in war many people not directly related get killed. The people in the land knew that the Israelis were coming and that God was helping them, they could have packed up and left(maybe some did). Also, complete annihilation was the only way of keeping the demonic influence from spreading to the Israelis, that does not mean that God enjoyed what had to be done.

    None of those are the reason why God ordered the destruction of those nations.

    1. We are all sinners yet God sent Jesus to save us.
    2. Future invasions were allowed because God judged the Israelites sin and idolatry caused by NOT destroying all the people who practiced perversion in the land God gave them.
    3. In the war between God and Satan, there are no cilvians.

    A research about "why Hebrews killed all peoples in the cities during conquered?"

    In Bible Moses and Joshua killed all peoples in the cities during conquering. It is not wrong . Because
    Thanks for mentioning this. From time to time, people ask about why God allowed killing in the Old Testament.

    The book of Joshua provides a physical picture of a spiritual reality, so that it can be easily understood by those in the present time of grace. Joshua's name is essentially identical to Jesus. He is a picture of Jesus in parable form. Those who are with him (Israel) are a picture of the true believers. The sword that is being used to put non-believers to death is the gospel, the word of God. The physical use of the sword in the book of Joshua is a picture of this which provides easy illustration. As the true believers go forth with the gospel they are conquering lands and putting those who do not receive the gospel to death spiritually, but only because they did not receive the gospel. It is not that they are attacking people physically, but giving them the chance to receive the gospel. We read about this: "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."

    The Old Testament is full of physical pictures of spiritual things. For example, when Moses struck the rock and water flowed out, it was a physical rock he struck and physical water flowed out. However, it was really an illustration of how when Jesus was struck on the cross, the gospel and spirit of eternal life was made available for those who were spiritually thirsty for it.

    From the Word my understanding is that those nations dispossessed had known Yahweh at one time and had turned to false gods, abominations in favor of the true, living God...... do not ask me to find it in thwe OT, the would be up to you, but I have learrned this from the OT.....God bless you.
    From the Mouth of our Lord, Jesus Christ, or do you call Him Yeshua?
    Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    We may see the other references ;


    Exo11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
    11:6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
    11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel




    Exo33:16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth

    His people/ the chosen/born of God are different to common humans in this planet (John1:12-13).
    What is the difference ?----> the spirit/spiritual being that God puts into the vessel (the inner men).
    God wants them to wander/sojourn in this planet that one day the winner will be granted the eternal body and live peacefully with Him in NHNE for example; Abel, Jacob .

    Where the common humans = born of flesh = dust/dirt merely like the animals God does not put the spiritual being (written in the book of life before the foundation of the world) within these vessels/camps for example ; Esau, Cain , these people are possible to be the devil’s camps (Gen3:14 , “and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life”) taken place in flood in Noah era, Sodom and Gomorrah event also native citizens in Canaan in Joshua era .

    Ecc3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity

    Zec12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

    Now we know what is the OP ‘s answer.

    note: the premise " salvation is only by God's Grace " is based on there be the Chosen.

    Prior to Israel's birth as a nation, the following passage shows the Amorites were being measured by God even as early as the time of Abraham. Note that the nation of Israel wasn't even around yet to be enslaved in Egypt much less be tasked with wiping them out.


    Genesis 15:16

    "But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full."


    ...now whether they were warned of their sin at this point is another question, but we can conclude they were being measured.


    Next, if we take clues from Genesis 6 (regarding Noah and the flood), since his law wasn't yet provided God judged mankind by what their conscience/spirit led them to do. And at that time he determined the people were "evil continuously", regretting that he created them. "All flesh has been corrupted (except for Noah)", so in God's righteous judgment he wiped out all life except for those who survived in the boat.

    God was the same at the time of the Amorites as he was at the time of the flood...the same at the time of Israel as he was during the time of Abraham. Except, instead of using a natural disaster to end all life he used surgical precision to clean up lands of evil since (a) he promised never to destroy the earth again with water and (b) he had good people he was cultivating: Abraham > Isaac > his Holy Priest nation.

    After God's priest-nation was established, we have to assume God gave gentile nations time to correct their sins before they "reach up to heaven" presumably sending them messengers or signs warning them (like Jonah). This was the mission of his chosen nation and the reason why they were created: to be his representatives and minister to the nations. Jonah didn't want to go to Nineveh because they were pagans but God made him.

    --

    With regard to children; we have to look at the situation from God's perspective and not ours. Experiencing life linearly and in this flesh, we see children and automatically do two things: (a) conclude their innocence and (b) assume familial ownership of them (and thus all the protective instincts we would have for our own children is projected onto them). But looking at a group of children from God's eyes, he - who is, was and will be - exists outside of linear time, and sees the terrible evil they've done already. He also knows that they are not "our" seed/kin, but are "another's" seed that God doesn't know; that were never supposed to be sown in some cases.


    Romans 8:29
    For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestine to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.


    Luke 13:27
    And he will reply, 'I tell you, I don't know you or where you come from. Get away from me, all you who do evil.'


    Matthew 13:25 & 27
    "...his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way...The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?


    There was an old horror movie called "The Omen", which was the story of the birth of the antichrist child. In the last scene, the earthly father of the child was tasked with killing the little boy. At the end of the movie when he finally had the opportunity to do it he couldn't. What if you were tasked will killing a future antichrist when he/she was a child? Could you do it? God's priest-nation essentially was given a similar task.

    Thankfully, judgment isn't ours but God's...but accordingly we must trust him in his just decisions, as his wisdom and reasons are far beyond our own understanding. Besides...we should have the faith of Abraham who - when tasked with killing his own son - reasoned within himself that "God could even raise him from the dead" (Heb 11:19) whenever he so chooses to (like we know he will at the end of days during one of the two resurrections).
    Malachi 3:2 - But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the [priests of God] and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have [people] who will [worship] in righteousness.

    Ezekiel 36:27 - And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

    - Joshua

    Numbers 13:33
    And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim), and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”

    the nephilim are not humans. when the Most High ordered their annihilation He was protecting His creation from being corrupted. the Most High says He hates the shedding of innocent blood. women and children were ordered to be killed in these places. what threat is a child to anyone unless its not a child as we know.

    It was because the iniquities of the Amorites was now full (Gen 15.16). God finally brought His judgement on them through His people.

    and in the days of Noah all flesh was corrupted. how many is all? did all die in the flood? Noah and his sons were the only ones not corrupted. Noah and his sons were not the only survivors, the wives of the sons survived and there is no mention they were without blemish, one can only conclude they were part of the "all" and thats how your corrupted blood gets past the flood and how you have nephilim in canaan.

    the purpose of the flood was to wipe them out. and God succeeded..

    Do you think God would have kept alive women who had consorted with angels?

    The Nephilim mentioned in Numbers are merely large men who tradition said where Nephilim.

    Main reasons ::
    1) They are killed because the are sinners
    2) They are killed inorder to prevent future invasions and rebels from them
    3) Killing civilians in war is acceptable and legal in ancient world.


    Extra reasons:


    (1) In olden days , killing inhabitants after capturing their city is a part of war that practices by all race. Killing inhabitants in acceptable and legal .


    (2) According to monarchy , if a king captures a city /country he have right on their land they conquered . So he can do any thing to the people he own. That is , they can kill the people or drove them away etc.


    (3) Since the promised land is occupied by other peoples , mosses and josua cleared them for Hebrew settlement.


    (4) Since the people worshipped other gods , Mosses killed them to save future from idoltery and praying to non -existing gods.


    (5) If he leave the peoples alive , in future they will war against them. So in order to save future war Joshua killed them.


    (6) Since the natural resources are difficult to get and store on that days, Moses and Joshua killed them to prevent famine and drought. If we distribute it with other race people , then it become insufficient for Hebrews .


    (7) in some cities virgins live sinless. So he don't kill them.They taken as slaves. This shows his merciful mind.


    (8) You will say , why they preached about god .. They can't because it is difficult to make barbarians understand. So killing is the only way.


    (9) In olden days , all males must participate in war , if required . So Hebrew soldiers killed all people to stop them from participating in war .


    (10) In olden days , there is no concept called genocide.. Killing civilians is a part of war. No one separated it from war.


    The main aspect is to stop contaminating a race by the dirts from other race.


    Notable points in genocide :


    1) mosses and Joshua don't shows any partiality during genocide . They killed rich , poor , studied ,unstudied persons.. No one spared.


    2) Moses and Joshua don't tortured any one , don't raped girls since it against human rights


    3) All soldiers of Joshua involved in killing and they happy about killing useless people.


    4) solderers went house by house , searched the house thoroughly and killed all humans in the house .


    Some questions and answers:


    1) Are they eligible to be killed ?
    Yes. Since they sinned against god and worshiped other false gods.


    2) Do Hebrews get benefits by killing them ?
    Yes. They eliminated the people those are ever long threat to them.


    3) Is killing is not cruel ?
    The wages of sin is death.. So killing sinned people not cruel .


    4) Why infants and children killed ?
    Because they also inherits their parents sin. But since they are childrens , after death they can directly go to heaven. So no loss for them.


    5) Why pregnant girls also killed ?
    The girls are also sinned. The fetus inside them also inherits sin. Like said in (4) above , after death fetus can directly go to heaven. So no loss for fetus.
    I did not get past the first line.....it had error...MOSES was killed by God before Joshua invaded the land...His punishment for striking the rock instead of speaking to it.....

    The Nephilim mentioned in Numbers are merely large men who tradition said where Nephilim.
    i seen large men and they didnt make me want to run home to my momma screaming. were there no above avg men where they came from ? these were the same people that had witnessed the red sea crossing, water from the rock and all the rest. they saw first hand the power of the Lord and now they throw in the towel over some tall guys?? and lets not forget the most important thing, the bible says they were nephilim.

    Interesting reasoning...I wonder, though, where you got your information? Did you know that God commanded them to kill all of those people? Did you know that it was not genocide..Wrong...or against God's Word? God did not contradict Himself in commanding this killing.
    When the Israelites crossed the desert our of Egypt into Canaan, The people they had to contend with were not even human people. There were thirty six tribes living in the area where God led His people to claim their own land..Canaan. The Canaanites were giants...That's why the spies said 'We are like grasshoppers in their eyes.'
    So eventually the took Canaan and moved in. Then they found they were surrounded by giants on all sides. God told them to clean out the giants and kill them all...Not humans, not genocide. Even then, not all of the giants were killed...Many fled to other lands.
    It's my belief that they were on the western area when the Earth was divided and wound up in what is called North America. I believe this because of the finds made by people in North America, of giants exhibiting same traits and cultures of those in the Middle East.
